Thermoluminescence (TL) properties of gamma-irradiated chemical vapor deposition (CVD) diamond films at high doses are presented. Samples of undoped and nitrogen-doped CVD diamonds were exposed to 60Co gamma sources and TL intensity as a function of the dose was analyzed. To evaluate the feasibility of using these materials as TL high-dose dosimeters, reproducibility of the TL signal, and the TL response as a function of absorbed dose from 100 Gy up to 10 kGy were studied. Furthermore, the fading of the TL glow curve was analyzed. Finally, to estimate the kinetics parameter values associated with the trap distribution in the CVD diamond, a computerized deconvolution was carried out by using the general order kinetics (GOK) model.
